Pink Rose with Shell, 6" x 6", oil

  Henri Matisse

When I started to paint "Pink Rose with Shell" I was interested in capturing the delicate colors of the rose and shell. But by using a folded, golden silk cloth as a background my interest shifted. I noticed that it had added an interesting landscape-like formation of hills and sunset light. The sheen of the cloth gave depth and luminosity to my still life. I am very happy with the outcome.
